2000 people hug trees to set world record

A strong group of 2000 individuals including students, politicians and monks hugged trees simultaneously to set a new Guinness World Record in Kathmandu on the World Environment Day. The stunt was primarily held to raise awareness about the importance of trees in our environment.

The participants hugged the trees for two minutes and the organizers will send photographs, videos, list of participants and signed statements to the Guinness, which will decide to recognize it as a new record or not.

If the feat is recognized, then it will replace the current record of 936 people hugging trees simultaneously in Portland, Oregon (US) in July 2013.

Parahawking in Pokhara

You’ve heard of paragliding, but ever heard of Parahawking?

Similar to paragliding, parahawking in Pokhara lets you glide and have a good time – but the later adds an extra dose of fun – you are guided by the vultures!

parahawking

The trained vultures guide the gliders to thermal areas over Lakeside, which helps the glide session to be more efficient because of the rising air. In doing so, the vultures are rewarded with small morsels of meat, which are offered by holding out on the glider’s gloved hand.

The project is run by British falconer Scott Masion with his team of multinationals and of course, the vultures – Kevin an Bob. The project only uses rescued birds and are not taken from the wild.

The parahawking experience is currently off-season but restarts in October and costs £125 per session. Something to plan for this year, perhaps?
